I have heard that sand mixed with Elmer's glue make a superior
blast-resistant bomb shelter. I think this is what the Germans used for
the submarine pens in France that are still there because they are too
strong to demolish. I suggest you give it a try.

Subject: bomb shelter

Dear Gentleman:

I am an engineer in a far away land, and I have been asked by my
superior
great engineer to design a bomb shelter made of reinforced concrete. I
expect it to be 20-30ft underground, and it needs to be able to
withstand at
a minimum the blast of about a 3000lb conventional ground penetrating
bomb,
or what you yankees call a "bunker buster". It also may need to
withstand
the hydrostatic pressure of all the oil we have in our ground. Can
anyone
reccomend any ACI or ASTM standards on which I may base my design? The
soil
here is sandy;  very, very , very SANDY. Your help will be much
appreciated
as my life and others depend on it. Time is of the essence as well, as
this
shelter needs to be ready, at what seems to be any day now.

Good day.
